Of course, it won’t. When will they solve the murder of the poor Korean woman found stuffed in the trunk of her car?


Just wondering if the police brought in backup from other precincts to go from door to door as they did in the most publicized break in recent times in Sunnyside??? This s much more serious and I hope it gets the publicity it deserves.


this is really bad especially since Woodside is a school and family area!I hope he gets caught


Is this fast action related to robbery at Jimmy’s place? In the past years I kept seeing fliers around neighborhood, papers slipped under my door in my apartment building, notices here on this site about robberies, but not once I heard someone get caught. Some said “inside job”, some said “savages from brooklyn”, some said “supers are in on it”.. I hope Jimmy takes these robbers as seriously as he got involved in dog runs and speed bumps on his streets while not doing anything for the south side of the neighborhood.


Hoof, you will get them at any subway in the morning or evening on their way to and fro work.

Best start rounding up all the white, fair-skinned, blond haired, blue-eyed, northern European types.


As the immortal Dwight Schrute said:
